This is a Motorcycle Safety Foundation course licensed by the State of Arizona. The course is 15 hours long. We have two presentations of the course: Once a month (depending on number of students) it is given on a Monday and Tuesday, *7.30 AM to 5:00 PM each day; and every weekend for 3 days starting on a Friday night, 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM (in the classroom), Saturday *6:30 AM to 3:00 PM (half riding range and half classroom), and Sunday *6:30 AM to 12 noon (all day on riding range). (*Start times may vary depending on the sunrise time of year.)
All training materials (manuals, motorcycles, helmets, and gloves) are furnished by AZMRT. For riding, each student must provide eye protection (regular eyeglasses or sunglasses), long-sleeved shirt or jacket, long sturdy pants, and over-the-ankle boots or shoes.
When you complete the course, you will receive an MSF Completion Card which can lower your motorcycle insurance rates up to 10% or more, depending upon the insurance carrier. You also receive a certificate from the State of Arizona that waives the written and riding tests for your motorcycle endorsement on your driver license.
Your RiderCoaches are certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. They’ll start you off with straight-line riding, turning, shifting, and stopping. You’ll gradually progress to cornering, swerving, and emergency braking. In the classroom you’ll learn about the different types of motorcycles, their controls, and how they operate.
Your RiderCoaches–most of them retired Police officers– are all experienced motorcyclists and will advise you on what to wear for comfort and protection on the road. You’ll find out how alcohol and other drugs affect your ability to ride safely. A very important segment of the course will show you how to create your own strategy for riding in traffic and dealing with critical situations.
The cost of the BASIC RIDERCOURSE is $250. which includes two Classroom and two Range sessions. All classes are held on 3-day weekends: Friday 6:00pm – 9:30pm; Saturday 6:30am – 3:00pm; Sunday 6:30am – Noon.
